One of those days.

/*

*
* (1) assuming that all architectures are big endian
* (2) storing/accessing shorts on unaligned boundaries
* (3) assuming all machines align things to 4 byte boundaries
*
* Define a 2-byte word type and a 4-byte word type.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

    • I was looking for the NeXTSTEP PDO, aka portable distributed objects. That’s the hell of the TLA (Three Letter Acronym), that it could have been anything…. Although I got past that build issue, turns out that the ObjectiveC runtime wasn’t being told to build ‘native’ aka on a NeXT so it was thinking it was OPENSTEP on another platform, which would then require PDO.
